Thoughts to destiny

in Life

Most of us are oblivious to our recurring thought patterns and chattering that happens in our head every hour of every day. More importantly, most of us are oblivious to the power our thought patterns can have on us and our destiny.

A thought arises in our mind pertaining to an event, a person or a situation. The thought is sub consciously analysed and filtered through our mental synapses to create a feeling.

A feeling is nothing but a response to our thought pattern. The feeling evokes within us an attitude, or a stand or a judgement of the event / person / situation in question. A positive feeling ensues a positive stance, and a negative feeling a retracting stance.

The attitude subsequently leads us to an action – an act of kindness, an act of greed, an act of love, and so on.


The mind learns from previous experiences and thought patterns how to respond to each thought.

Recurring actions lead to a habit. Do the same thing consciously each time, and soon enough, you won’t be conscious you’re doing it. It’s become a habit.

A habit surfaces as a part of your identity, or personality. It becomes your character and starts to define who you are.

And who you are, and how you react ultimately defines your destiny.

Your thought. Your destiny.

[Just a small lesson I learnt from Mike George at the Brahmakumari Center]

Thank you Nidhie – I’m glad you liked it, and thanks for reading. No particular reason for keeping it quiet, apart from the fact that my blog is just some random thoughts and musings I have – don’t really think it may interest anyone. I write for my own pleasure and reference. But I’m really glad you enjoyed reading it. 🙂
